    One thing that annoyed me about the vintage MUSCLE figures were those characters posed with their arms folded or down. I only played with figures who had arms up with grapple hands or fists. Did anyone else feel the same way? I'd like to see some figures get a new figure down the line with different poses.

    Has anyone heard when these might show up on the Super7 site? I noticed they put up the tumblers and an $8500 Battle Cat head (checking my budget now).
    Snake Mountain, FINALLY!!!

    Awesome ... or at least it would be if they would ship to Canada.

    Am I missing something?

    So there's a shipping option to the UK, but not to Canada? Grrrr.

    (And if there's anyone heading to the physical store who'd be able to pick these up and ship them to Canada, PM me!)

    Ordered two sets! The extra set I'll probably paint. Looking forward to Wave 2! It would be great to see this line expanded.

    Whoa whoa, wait... shipping for one set is $49 to the UK? That must be some kind of mistake surely!

    Oooh that postage was expensive, luckily they had the Funko Jaws stuff on the site, got me a Bruce the Shark which, with dollar to pound convention being so good means I paid about £12 per item (after shipping) - that's cheaper than a 3.3" Star Wars figure!

    Nah, a bunch of these little sites do that, they presumably think it'll make you buy more (it worked today, i guess) October Toys does it too. Kinda makes Digital River look better, which means it must be rotten!

    Yeah, I've just noticed that if I buy two sets of each (total 8) plus the set of four pint glasses the shipping comes to $53. Still seems a lot but certainly better than $49 for three 1.75 inch figures!
    Not sure if I can justify spending $140 on some glasses and rubber minifigs right now.

    I guess those of us in the UK could get one big delivery of MOTUSCLES and split the shipping to make it a bit more reasonable.

    It was 49 bucks for shipping all 4 sets, which unfortunately for me makes them not worth having.

    Yeah but it's still 49 bucks for 8 sets (probably still 49 for more too) so if you find some other UKers on the boards who are up for getting one bulk order between you you can split the shipping.

    On the Toybreak video they said they were much gummier than real muscles, which will make them harder to paint.

    To be honest I'm not really desperate for these so I'm quite happy to miss out on them.

    I decided to buy 2 of each set (I'm going to try and paint them...and I'm worried it won't turn out so well ).

    Oh, man! I WISH I knew they had Jaws on their site. TOTALLY would have bought him. I had to do quite a bit of searching to find him after I read dwitegry's post. Oh well...I'll get him when I'm less poor.

    I REALLY hope we get Evil-Lyn, Sorceress, She-Ra, non-snake armour Teela (so the other one can be "Goddess"), Hordak and King Hiss. I doubt we'll get all those in the next wave because 4 of those are ladies...but you never know. 4/12 being female isn't bad...seeing as snake Teela was just 1/12 in wave 1.

    Which must-haves do you guys want to see?

    I would LOVE an Orko, too...but...I can't even fathom how tiny he would have to be.

    Aw no, pack B sold out already? I had them all in my cart last night but thought I'd sleep on it and make a decision in the morning. Guess I'll just buy one set off eBay now and not buy the glasses.

    Edit: Decided to buy the remaining packs. Got to checkout, pack A had now also sold out. I give up!

    Why does buying tiny pink rubber toys have to be so difficult?

    Hopefully so fast that this was just their first shipment, or that they will see this as a reason to do another run.

    I hope that someday they will also do another run where they reformulate the density for these as they have been reported to be much more pliable than original MUSCLE figures. Since they have the rights they might as well get them to be as close as possible to the vintage toys.

    I'd like to see more colorways in addition to more figures (Stratos!) and a slightly more rigid PVC.

    Glad I clicked on this thread. I really wanted Ram-Man, but not for $10 on eBay.

    $8 shipping on a $6 item is rough, but que sera sera.
